    The promise of sustainability begins

    in 1965.

    In 1965 there was no question of sustainability, because sustainability was in every action and in every thought of our ancestor. Their life and work were associated with Valdagno area that was both the source of raw material, of the workforce, and a destination of all the articles of manufacture. Therefore, our companys work contributed to maintaining the wealth of the region.

  • We have always respected the timeof nature, to get the

    best from it.

    There were no toxic varnishes or adhesives. When the company Zordan Attilio Falegname was founded, the furniture was made of solid wood and finished with beeswax or linseed oil. The workshop was heated by burning the off cuts of wood. The production process hadto respect the time determined by the properties of material in use, and if anywork was not ready in time, the workersoffered to the customers their ownfurniture. Moreover, when finally the cabinet was ready, it was deliveredcovered with pieces of cloth reused severaltimes.

    Our production grew, but never

    forgetting to put in the middle men and

    their habitats.

    With the next generation, the company continued to grow, and along with the wood, it introduced other materials in the production process. We began to providefurniture for fairs, processing multiple materials. Although the complexity of the work had increased, we decided to stay committed to that way of production that puts in the middle a man and his habitats.
